i’ve decided i dont want a baby. oh i’m sure my feelings about this will change tomorrow, but as of right now, i dont want a kid. why? hmm…i dont know about you, but i think today was National Bring Your Screaming Kid With You On Your Commute Day. its like…i couldn’t get away from them.
this one kid just kept yelling and screaming and crying for the ENTIRE ride. and then he had some competition from this OTHER little girl who wanted nothing but her mom’s attention and gave this high pitched scream/cry thingy. and i heard ALL of this while i’m trying to take a nap to some music.
i couldn’t help but think what everyone ELSE on the train was thinking. one of the GRANDMA looking riders looked at the parent in disgust. as if to say, “control your child, woman!”. other riders just tried to ignore the whole thing.
me? at first i didn the whole SUCKING ME TEETH sound thing, but then i actually started to think some of this was funny. here are a bunch of kids crying their eyes out, yelling at the top of their lungs, while their parents just sit there and wish time would fast forward a bit to when the kid is finally a coherent being.
i dont know HOW i would react if that was my kid. i guess at this point in my life i just can’t see myself having to deal with a child. oh sure, i’m sure there’s a million GREAT reasons to have one. but that one moment of being in public and trying to shut that kid up…i dont know how i would deal with it.
ha..i guess i’m naturally arrogant enough to believe that when I WAS a baby….i was quiet and mild-mannered. haha. i know…its horrible of me to think that.
i’m sure my mom had to deal with my crying. i wonder how she did it.
hmmm……..i know all of this will change. and i know that when i’m a parent, and my little kid is yelling so loud at the top of his lungs, a part of me will think, “wow….so this is what it’s like….uh….now what do i do?”
another part of me will also be smirking, JUST a little bit.
